THE RAZOR KIT

Do I need to use shaving cream with The Razor Kit?

Our Cloud Shave Foam paired with The Razor Kit is a totally luxe experience. However, thanks to our blades that are enhanced with shea butter and a skin-soothing, water-activated serum, you can also use the razor all by itself.

Can I decide how often I receive replacement cartridges?

You can! You can choose to receive replacement blades every month, every two months, or every three months.

Is it safe to shave all parts of my body?

Yep. No matter where, when, or how you choose to shave, our razor has your back (...or legs. Or armpits. Or wherever!).

What makes The Razor Kit better than those currently on the market?

Our razor has the sharpest patented blades and is ergonomically designed to feel comfortable in your hand, making every shave a perfect one. The handle is made from anodized aluminum and has a fiber glass internal core, so it’s really built to last.

CLOUD SHAVE FOAM

Can men use Cloud Shave Foam for their faces?

You bet! Cloud Shave foam is safe for everyone to use, wherever they choose to shave.

Is Cloud Shave Foam available in other scents?

Currently, it’s only available in one scent.

How strong is the scent and how long does it last throughout the day?

Cloud Shave Foam is lightly scented. And while you might get whiffs of it throughout the day, the scent will remain super subtle.

Should I moisturize after shaving with Cloud Shave Foam?

Cloud Shave Foam is packed with super moisturizing ingredients to keep your skin feeling soft and smooth all on its own - however, feel free to finish your shave with our Dewy Body Lotion if you want your skin to feel extra silky and hydrated.

Does the texture of Cloud Shave Foam remain foamy or does it change as it settles in?

Cloud Shave Foam starts as a foam, then evolves into a creamy gel as you rub it onto your skin.

How much Cloud Shave Foam should I use per wash?

A little goes a long way! One pump should do the trick with covering wherever you’d like to shave, but feel free to indulge with some extra Cloud Shave Foam to make your showering experience extra luxe.

Does Cloud Shave Foam work well with sensitive skin?

It certainly does. It was created with calming ingredients, like aloe and oat, that play well with sensitive skin types.

ALL DAY DEO

Will there be a transition period when switching to All Day Deo?

Because your body is clearing itself of accumulated toxins in clogged pores, you might experience more sweating or odor in the first four weeks of use. In that case, apply twice a day. However, most people experienced little to no change in their sweating patterns, odor, or irritation.

Would All Day Deo be effective for a man to use as well?

Yes! All Day Deo works well on everyone, regardless of gender.

Will this product work for me if I sweat a lot?

Yep! A lot of sweat is no match for All Day Deo. Even those who perspire more will smell nice and fresh all day, and it’s formulated with ingredients like diatomaceous earth and tapioca starch which will keep your underarms feeling drier.

Will I be able to smell the All Day Deo scent?

All Day Deo comes in two awesome scents, and while you may get whiffs of your deo throughout the day, the scents were designed to be subtle - not overpowering.

How often do I need to apply All Day Deo each day?

Apply All Day Deo in the morning to smell great throughout the day, or anytime you feel you need to freshen up quickly, like after a workout!

Why is aluminum-free deodorant so important?

Aluminum prevents the body from ridding itself of toxins. Importantly, some diseases have also been linked to aluminum compounds that are found in antiperspirants.

What are the benefits of a natural deodorant?

Believe it or not, you’re supposed to sweat! Sweating not only regulates your body temperature, but it also releases any toxins building up in your body. Natural deodorants won’t block your pores, will minimize sweating without blocking your pores/glands - all while keeping you smelling fresh.

What is the difference between deodorant and antiperspirant?

The primary difference is that antiperspirant was made to stop your body from releasing sweat (and toxins) by using ingredients such as aluminum to block the sweat glands. Deodorant, on the other hand, prevents body odors and minimizes sweat through the use of natural actives such as Diatomaceous Earth.

CREAMY BODY WASH

Do I need Cloud Shave Foam if I use Creamy Body Wash?

Our Cloud Shave Foam is as dreamy as it sounds. It’s a nice plus for when you’re shaving, but our Creamy Body Wash can also be used as a replacement!

What is the difference between body wash, body gel and Creamy Body Wash?

Body gel and wash often have a more liquid-like and clear consistency and tend to be less moisturizing. More often than not, they will leave your skin feeling dry. Our Creamy Body Wash is creamy and moisturizing yet cleansing- the perfect trifecta.

Will Creamy Body Wash work well with sensitive skin?

Yes! It is formulated without any nasties (parabens, sulfates, alcohol, petrochemicals, acrylates, crosspolymers, synthetic fragrances, harsh surfactants, etc.) to be super gentle on your skin. Plus we added all the good stuff (like vitamins and healthy oils) to keep your skin clean, hydrated and happy.

Should I use Creamy Body Wash every day?

You can use it whenever you shower! It was created to balance your skin’s pH, and it’s super gentle to keep your skin’s natural oils intact.

DEWY BODY LOTION

Why does this lotion contain alcohol?

Our lotion is actually alcohol-free! We do not use solvent alcohol or ethanol (ethyl alcohol), which you typically find in many skincare products. Instead we use fatty alcohols (derived from coconut or sustainable palm), which are used as emollients and thickeners - they are not irritating and can be very beneficial for your skin. As described in FDA regulation: ”Cosmetic products, including those labeled ‘alcohol free,’ may contain other alcohols, such as cetyl, stearyl, cetearyl, or lanolin alcohol. These are known as fatty alcohols, and their effects on the skin are quite different from those of ethyl alcohol.”

Can I use Dewy Body Lotion on my face, or will it clog my pores?

We formulated Dewy Body Lotion with the intention of it being like a face cream for your body. Not too greasy or watery, it was made to hydrate your skin and is balanced at the optimal body pH. If you want to use if on your face, try it in a small area at first, as the skin on your face may react to products differently (and can even have a different pH) than the skin on your body.

Can you use too much Dewy Body Lotion?

No, however if you apply too much, it may take a bit longer to absorb. Also, be sure to use as much as your skin needs. If you have dry skin, you might need more lotion. Gage your perfect amount of Dewy Body Lotion based on your skin type and hydration needs!

What amount of Dewy Body Lotion should I use per application?

It all depends on how much area you want to cover. Pump away!

How often should I apply Dewy Body Lotion?

We would recommend using it daily for optimal results, however we like to use it anytime our skin needs it! Apply whenever your skin feels dry for quick hydration.

LINERS

Where are Athena Club liners made?

Our organic liners are made in Italy and our premium liners are made in Germany.

What are the liners packaged in?

Recyclable cardboard boxes. When they’re empty, toss ‘em in that blue bin. You know the drill.

How often should I change my liner?

You should get a fresh one every 4-6 hours, but you can change them more frequently too! It’s your liner.

How do I use a liner?

Unwrap it, stick it to your undies, go about your day.

Do I go with premium or organic?

The main difference is ingredients, though both are free of harsh chemicals + hypoallergenic. Basically, premium is great if you want something more absorbent and more affordable. Organic is great if you choose to only shop organic. Want more info, go here.

MULTI

Why did you add peppermint oil and flavor?

Peppermint oil and flavor help to improve the taste and smell of the omega-3 rich algal oil. Peppermint is also a natural digestive aid!*

What is DuoCap? Why is this beneficial?

DuoCap is an innovative technology that allows us to mix water and oil-soluble vitamins together, which you can’t traditionally do in multivitamins. It is essentially a 2-in-1 pill that creates a barrier between the water and oil soluble vitamins.

What is the packaging made of? Can I recycle it?

The packaging is made of glass. Yes, you can recycle it!

Is this product verified or audited by a third party?

Yes, the product is tested by a third-party lab for composition, microbial contamination, and heavy metals to ensure the ingredients meet our quality standards and that what you see on the label is what you find in the capsule.

I am pregnant or breastfeeding. Can I still use this product?

If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, we recommend that you always consult with your physician before taking a multivitamin or any supplement.

I am taking prescription medicine. Can I still use this product?

If you are taking prescription medicine, we recommend that you always consult with your physician before taking a multivitamin or any supplement.

How does a Delayed Release capsule prevent nausea associated with taking supplements?

Delayed Release capsules are designed to pass through the stomach without dissolving. This no-nausea design allows the capsule to bypass the stomach, delivering the vitamins directly to the small intestine where they are optimally absorbed. Typical supplements are broken down by stomach acid, which can lead to nausea, upset stomach and indigestion.*

Where should I store my supplements?

Keep in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight.

I have the MTHFR gene and cannot take folic acid - can I take this?

Yes! This vitamin contains a reduced form of folate, 5-MTHF, that people with and without a MTHFR gene mutation can benefit from. MTHFR (also known as methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase) is an enzyme that breaks down the amino acids folate and homocysteine. Some people have a MTHFR gene mutation which prevents the enzyme from properly breaking down folic acid, a synthetic form of folate. People with this mutation may benefit from supplementing with 5-MTHF.*

What type of testing do you do?

First, each ingredient is tested for identity, purity, potency, and safety. Once the final capsule is ready, it is tested again by a third-party lab for composition, microbial contamination, and heavy metals. We do all of this because we want to ensure the ingredients meet our quality standards and that what you see on the label is what you find in the capsule.

Is this vitamin vegan? Gluten-free? Non-GMO?

This vitamin is vegan, gluten-free and non-GMO. It is also free of lactose, wheat, soy, and artificial colors.

What are excipients?

Excipients are substances in dietary supplements that contribute functional or structural characteristics, but do not contribute nutritional benefits. Excipients play various roles, helping to make the supplement easier to consume or to improve consistency of production. This vitamin includes Microcrystalline Cellulose, L-Leucine, and Silica. All excipients are made in the USA and are naturally-derived. We select all ingredients, including excipients, with extreme caution and choose only the most safe, effective and high quality options available.*

Can I take this every day?

Yes, you should take two capsules every day for optimal effect!*

Can men take these supplements?

Yes, the nutrients in these vitamins are beneficial to both men and women!*

Why should I take vitamins?

Vitamins are organic compounds found in food that are essential for normal growth and bodily function. The body cannot make all necessary vitamins and minerals, so they must be consumed from food or supplement sources. A multivitamin is a great way to supplement a healthy lifestyle based around a balanced whole foods diet, adequate sleep, stress management and exercise. The Daily Multi can help fill nutrient gaps that are common in the Western diet and support overall health. Each individual ingredient in the multivitamin plays a specific role. Read more about them here!*

The capsule looks different - why?

This capsule uses the innovative DuoCap technology to seal two supplements into one pill. DuoCap keeps the liquid and oil soluble vitamins Omega-3, vitamin D3 and vitamin E oils separate from the inner ingredients (solid or water soluble nutrients) to improve absorption and maintain the quality of the vitamin. Furthermore, it allowed us to combine oil and water soluble nutrients in one capsule.

How is this multivitamin different?

This multivitamin is specifically formulated to address common dietary deficiencies and overall health. It combines clean ingredients with innovative technology to provide a superior quality, highly absorbable supplement. The multivitamin provides key ingredients to fill nutrient gaps, but doesn’t mix things that shouldn’t be taken together, such as calcium, iron and magnesium. It is also non-GMO, vegan, and also free from soy, wheat, gluten, lactose and artificial flavors.*

How do you determine the right dosage of each ingredient?

We looked at common dietary deficiencies to identify which ingredients most individuals would benefit from. We then investigated the Reference Daily Intake (RDI) or the recommended daily intake level of a nutrient that is sufficient to meet the requirements of approximately 97% of healthy American individuals. Careful consideration of synergistic and antagonistic nutrients was taken into account to create the most effective and safe multivitamin possible.*

Do I need to take these at a specific time of day? Should I take with food and/or water?

There’s no need to take the multivitamin at a specific time of day. We recommend taking the multivitamin in the morning so that you don’t forget, but if you prefer evening, before bed, or lunchtime, that works too! Establishing a routine of taking vitamins at the same time every day helps to form a habit, but the precise timing isn’t necessary. The multivitamin should be taken with water. It can be taken with food or on an empty stomach. Taking multivitamins with food may boost the body’s ability to absorb many of the vitamins and reduce the risk of nausea and upset stomach. These delayed release capsules have a no-nausea design, as they pass through the stomach and only dissolve in the intestines.*

How long will it take to see results and what should I expect to see?

Results will vary based on the individual. You may start to see and feel results immediately, or within a few weeks. A multivitamin is a great way to supplement a healthy lifestyle based around a balanced whole foods diet, adequate sleep, stress management and exercise. The Daily Multi multivitamin can help fill nutrient gaps that are common in the Western diet and support overall health. Each individual ingredient in the multivitamin plays a specific role. Read more about them here.

PADS

What are the Athena Club pads made of?

Our organic pads are made with 100% organic cotton. Our premium pads use a 100% organic topsheet, 88% Green PE backing and a core with super absorbent polymers.

What are the pads packaged in?

Recyclable cardboard boxes. When they’re empty, toss ‘em in that blue bin. You know the drill.

Can Athena Club pads be used for incontinence?

Yes they can!

Do I go with premium or organic?

Good q. Organic pads are made of 100% organic cotton and nothing else, while premium pads also contain SAP for extra protection. Both are free of harsh chemicals, are FDA compliant and meet our incredibly high standards. For a complete breakdown go here.

Where are Athena Club pads made?

Our organic pads are made in Italy and our premium pads are made in Germany.

Which size of pads should I get?

We offer regular and super. Regular is good for light to medium flows. Super is good for heavier flows and overnight use. Also FYI, supers are a little wider and longer. Take your pick.

How often should I change my pad?

You should get a fresh one every 4-6 hours, but you can change them more frequently too! Whatever you feel, just go with your flow.

How do I use a pad?

Super easy. Just unwrap it, remove the sticker holding the wings together, stick the pad on your undies and wrap the wings around. Voila.

PROBIOTIC

I am pregnant, can I take this product?

If you are pregnant or nursing, you should speak to your doctor about any supplements in your routine to make sure they are the right fit for you.

What is the packaging made of? Can I recycle it?

We use a frosted glass bottle for two reasons: 1. Glass is more sustainable than plastic and we choose to run our company as sustainably as possible. 2. Frosted glass is the best barrier to moisture and light, which means that your supplements will stay fresh longer.

I am taking prescription medicine. Can I still use this product?

It’s always best to discuss any supplement additions or changes with your healthcare provider, especially if you are taking prescription medications. Your doctor can tell you whether Daily Probiotic is the right choice for you.

How does a Delayed Release capsule prevent nausea associated with taking supplements?

The release of supplements within the stomach is known to cause nausea. To bypass this effect, we use a Delayed Response capsule, which allows the supplement to release much later than with a normal capsule. Our data shows that the Delayed Release capsule breaks down after 52 minutes, which allows the supplement to make it into the small intestine in many cases. Releasing the supplement ingredients into the small intestine instead of the stomach can significantly reduce, and may even eliminate, the nausea that is associated with taking supplements. Note that this may be impacted by whether you take the Daily Probiotic with or without food. If you are especially sensitive to supplements, taking Daily Probiotic may still cause discomfort, but it should be less than you experience with typical capsules.

Where should I store my supplements?

We recommend storing Daily Probiotic in a cool, dry place to help keep your probiotic bacteria alive and well.

I do not like taking pills - can I open this and put it in a liquid or food?

Absolutely! If you’d like to mix your Daily Probiotic into food or liquid, we recommend consuming it in a cold or room-temperature food. Hot or boiling food/liquid will reduce the amount of live probiotic bacteria that make it to your gut. However, we still suggest you take it in pill format; we use Delayed Release capsules to ensure the pill bypasses your stomach acids and only dissolves in your intestines (where nutrients are absorbed).

What type of testing do you do?

Quality is extremely important to us. Because of this, we third-party test our products for heavy metals, microbes, allergens, and other contaminants to ensure that these levels are below what is deemed safe by the FDA’s current Good Manufacturing Process. Plus, our manufacturer is NSF verified.

Is this product vegan? Gluten-free? Non-GMO?

It is! We wanted Daily Probiotic to be accessible to everyone, so it is vegan and non-GMO.

Do I need to refrigerate my probiotics?

No. We use a probiotic “overage” in our Daily Probiotic, which means we add extra probiotics to make sure that even if some of them die when exposed to heat, air, or moisture, you’ll still be getting the doses listed on the bottle. We also picked the most clinically studied and stable strains that live well in ambient temperatures. So take your probiotic wherever life takes you—you’ll always be covered. However, if your home is warmer than 80 degrees F for an extended period of time, please consider refrigerating.

Can I take this everyday?

Yes! In fact, we recommend you take Daily Probiotic every day for the best effect.

Can men take these supplements?

While men can certainly take the Daily Probiotic, it was tailored to support women’s health.

Why should I take probiotics?

Probiotics have long been known for their health benefits, and as research progresses we continue to learn more and more about the ways they can support your health. In the modern world, we are exposed to a lot of things that have a negative impact on our microbiome, such as the polluted air we breathe, the unhealthy food we may eat, the medications we may take, and more. Supporting your microbiome with probiotics such as those in our Daily Probiotic helps to support a microbiome that is under attack from the outside world and keep your digestive system thriving.

Tell me more about strains vs species.

Probiotic names contain 3 parts: the genus, species, and strain. For example, take “Lactobacillus rhamnosus GG.” For this probiotic, “Lactobacillus” is the genus name, “rhamnosus” is the species name, and “GG” is the strain name. This strain has different effects on your health than Lactobacillus rhamnosus HN001, a probiotic of the same species but different strain.

Why is a probiotic strain important?

The effect of probiotics are strain-specific. That means that one probiotic strain may have a completely different effect on your body than another probiotic strain. With that in mind, it’s important to choose a probiotic supplement that lists the specific probiotic strains in their product (not all do!) and that you choose a supplement that contains strains unique to your needs. Daily Probiotic contains strains specific to the needs of women to properly support your health.

What are probiotics?

Probiotics are live, beneficial bacteria that have a positive impact on your health. They can be found in foods like yogurt and kombucha but also come in supplement form, like in Daily Probiotic.Taking probiotics supports your health in many ways, and we’ve chosen specific probiotic strains that uniquely support women’s health needs.

How do you determine the right dosage of each ingredient?

We spent many hours digging into the research on probiotic strains to determine the right strains to include in Daily Probiotic and the right dosage for each strain. That means that you’re getting evidence-based doses of probiotics that have been shown to benefit human health.

Do I need to take these at a specific time of day? Should I take with food and/or water?

You can take Daily Probiotic at whatever time is convenient to you, but we recommend taking your dose with a meal. Taking your probiotic with food helps it to get where it needs to go in the digestive tract and make it there alive. That said, if you strongly prefer to take your probiotic without food or if you forget to take it with a meal, it’s still okay to take it on an empty stomach.

How long will it take to see results and what should I expect to see?

Everybody is unique. Some people may notice changes right away when starting Daily Probiotic, while others may only start to notice differences after a few months of taking it. Because of this, we recommend giving Daily Probiotic at least a few months for you to start noticing a difference. Daily Probiotic helps to support your digestive and vaginal health. After a few days, you may notice localized improvement, such as improved digestion or better vaginal health. That said, know that the benefits of Daily Probiotic may become more noticeable after you’ve been taking it for a few months. Sometimes, there may not be any noticeable improvements, but know that as long as you’re taking Daily Probiotic, the microbes are doing all their hard work for you behind the scenes.

SOFT FACE WIPES

Are Soft Face Wipes portable?

They are! They come in a convenient package that’s easy to throw into your purse, gym bag, or luggage.

Can I use Soft Face Wipes on any part of my body?

Yep! Soft Face Wipes were designed for all skin types, from dry to oily and everything in between.

Can I use Soft Face Wipes as a substitute for face wash?

Why should I use Soft Face Wipes?

Soft Face Wipes are a seamless way to wipe your face clean of makeup and grime in one fell swoop. They’re also total over achievers, as they leave behind multivitamins and antioxidants to help your skin look and feel its best.

What material are the wipes made of?

They’re produced using a blend of cellulosic fibers and fluff pulp. The manufacturing process for both the Fluff Pulp and Cellulosic fibers is an Elemental Chlorine Free (ECF) process.

TAMPONS

What is Toxic Shock Syndrome (TSS)?

TSS is a rare, life-threatening complication of bacterial infections. TSS is a medical emergency. TSS is often caused by toxins produced by two types of bacteria: staph and strep. TSS has been linked to the use of tampons, but today approximately half of TSS cases are related to menstrual product use. We recommend changing your tampon at least every 4-8 hours, and never using your tampon for more than 8 hours. Always use the lightest absorbency you need for your flow, and do not use higher absorbency tampons solely to avoid changing your tampon too often. For more information regarding TSS, please read the leaflet inserted in each package or speak with your doctor.

What is the packaging made of?

Our pouch is made of recyclable kraft paper.

What is the applicator made of?

Sugarcane Bio-Plastic

How do I use tampons?

If you’re new to the world of tampons—welcome! They may seem intimidating at first, but you’ll be a pro after a few tries. Complete instructions are included in every package, but here’s the quickie version: 1. Hold the applicator at the grooved rings with your thumb and middle. 2. Gently ease the applicator into your vagina until your finger and thumb are touching your body. 3. Push the inner tube up into the outer tube with your index, then remove both tubes. 4. You know you’ve done it right If you don’t feel the tampon at all. The string should be hanging outside your bod. 5. After 4-8 hours, pull on the string to remove the tampon, then insert a new one as needed. YOU. GOT. THIS.

Are Athena Club tampons tested on animals?

Nope. No cute and fuzzy guys were harmed in the making of these tampons, or any of our period or body products.

Are your tampons FDA approved?

All our tampons are FDA 501(k) cleared and we are an FDA-registered establishment!

THE CUP

Are all cups created equal?

Unfortunately they are not. There is a lot of junk out there, often made in unregulated and unregistered facilities. When thinking about which cup to buy, make sure the cup is made with 100% medical grade silicone, FDA compliant, and 501 (k) cleared. If you have questions about our manufacturing practices and ingredients, don’t hesitate to reach out!

Don’t worry, this happens! ! Leaking with the cup is most often caused by the cup being positioned incorrectly or not creating a secure suction seal. Try using a different fold technique or changing up the placement height to ensure your cup is inserted correctly and completely sealed.

How often should I switch to a new cup?

We recommend switching to a new cup once a year. There are a few different factors that affect how long your cup can be used such as how often you clean your cup and what you use to clean it, along with your own vaginal pH. Be sure to take a thorough look at your cup on a regular basis, and if you see any signs of wear and tear such as films, discoloring, or odors, replace the cup as soon as possible.

How should I store it?

Place your clean cup in its pouch and store in a safe, dry place until your next period.

Does size matter?

Though most people can wear either cup size, things like flow, cervix height, and physique can help you determine which one is best for you. For a detailed breakdown, go here.

How do I take care of it?

Just empty contents in the toilet, wash your cup with clean water or re-sterilize by boiling. Pretty easy, right?

How do I remove it?

Wash your hands with warm soapy potable water, then make sure you’re in a relaxed, seated position. Find the stem and with your thumb and index finger, pinch the ribbed area above the stem to break the seal. Make sure the seal is broken before pulling to prevent suction, then slowly slide the cup out. If you have trouble finding it, don’t freak out. Just push outward/Just push outward with your vaginal muscles while you feel for the stem with your thumb and index finger. Whoop, there it is.

How long can I wear it?

You can wear your cup up to 10-12 hours at a time, and it should be emptied and washed at least every 12 hours.

How do I use this thing?

We include instructions + diagrams in every package, so check those out for a full breakdown. But really it’s just these 3 (relatively easy) steps. 1. Fold the cup to make it easier to insert. We suggest the “C Fold” but do you. 2. Make sure you’re in a relaxed, seated position and slide the cup (rim first) into your vagina. The cup will open as it goes in. 3. It should be fully expanded and sealed against the vaginal walls but if it feels weird, try rotating the cup or re-inserting. It should rotate freely and feel comfy, then you’re good to go. Cup success!
